MORE ABOUT WHAT YOU'LL DO:

You'll have a diverse portfolio that spans Consumer Enterprises' business lines and A+E Networks' brands: you'll support the growth of our existing businesses and create new ones. You'll apply new business models against the company's existing corporate assets to create growth in the form of new live events and experiences, or entirely new ways to engage our audience in-person or virtually in close collaboration with the VP Consumer Enterprises. Responsibilities will include:
• Work with VP of Consumer Enterprises set overall goals and revenue targets for the business

Our team has a broad remit to grow revenue, increase brand awareness, and drive innovation across A+E Networks. We build and operate businesses, so you'll be able to work both sides of your brain, from creative to marketing to business development to relationship management and legal, financial, and operational execution. You'll be learning constantly and will love that every day is different: you'll be constantly tackling new challenges and finding new ways to get things done. This role offers:
• An extremely hands on opportunity where management responsibilities will need to be balanced with ''rolling up the sleeves and getting into the weeds''
• A fast-moving and fluid work environment where priorities can shift and projects may need to be started and stopped quickly
• A data-driven environment where creative and qualitative choices must be supported by rigorous analysis and performance must be measured
• A high degree of autonomy
• Frequent interaction with senior leadership who have very high expectations
• Possibility for domestic travel
• Opportunity for advancement and growth as the team scales, new businesses get launched, and as measurable successful results are delivered

• Excellent cross-team collaboration and partnership skills, with demonstrated ability to work across organizations and reporting boundaries to get things done
• Successfully demonstrated experience internal and external clients
• Strong critical thinking skills, creativity, and the ability to successfully multi-task
• Proven negotiating skills, and experience in developing and implementing long-term strategies
• Capable communicator who can make arguments clearly and succinctly, both verbally and in writing
• Innovative and creative: whether you're designing a new product, improving a website experience, or brainstorming marketing concepts, you're asking questions and sharing your point of view. You're a creative thinker.
• Action-oriented, entrepreneurial, and self-motivated: a team player with a bias for action
• Flexible: You can go from high-level strategy to in-the-weeds execution and have a strong ability to multitask. You thrive in a fast-paced, changing environment that necessitates working on many different projects simultaneously. You are extremely organized and detail oriented. You're always looking for ways to make an existing process more efficient.
• Tools: Working knowledge of Microsoft Office, Airtable and other productivity tools
• Education: BA/BS Degree or equivalent experience
